Summary

DI Vera Stanhope is not one to make friends easily, but she has more tolerance for her hippy neighbours than most. When one of them goes missing, she feels duty-bound to find out what happened. It's an easy job to track the young woman down to a country retreat where aspiring authors gather to work through their novels. It gets complicated when a body is discovered and Vera's neighbour is found with a knife in her hand.
Calling in the team, Vera knows that she should hand the case over to someone else, but the investigation is too tempting. Then another body is found, and Vera suspects that someone is playing games with her.

Great listen

I love the series Vera so I bought this book and I wasn't disappointed. You really get in to the characters and places. I love the narrator Charlie Hardwicks voice and it's great that she is a geordie as after watching Vera it wouldn't sound right in any other accent.

Country house murder mystery

A quintessential country house murder mystery from the current queen of crime drama.
A crime committed in an enclosed location, with a personal connection to Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope , set amongst literary figures, ensures a drama which draws the reader into an unfamiliar world .
The plot weaves in & out so that each character in turn becomes victim & suspect. A superb read.
